CE Course Description

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a novel form of therapy that focuses on resolving the symptoms of chronic stress and post-traumatic stress.  This advanced CE course demonstrates how the methods of SE help restore functionality to the core response network and provides a possible neurophysiological rationale for the mechanisms involved.

CE Course Objectives

1.  Enumerate key elements of SE.

4.  Examine the systems that form the core response network.

5.  Scrutinize how the “mindful” aspects of SE may facilitate spontaneous self-regulation.

6.  Describe why, for the mental health professional, using the phrase “I imagine . . .” is important when describing observations of the patient’s inner state.
